Which ghostly item is your favorite from this list?
And because it's in my head... Here's the Grim Grinning Ghosts song... This is my childhood.

Si Je Perds {Musical Mondays}

What is Musical Mondays?
Musical Mondays is a weekly linky party where we share a song we're into for the week, and talk about why we like it-or why it effects us. Along with talking about music, I host a month-long music related giveaway.
This week's song:
Si Je Perds
by Zaz

 
French
English
Je me sens brocante, je suis la méchante
Si mes enfants m'invitent je fais la pas contente
et quand ils me visitent je suis la transparente
Je me ressemble pâlotte, je me sanglote
Mes enfants me nettoient, des inconnus me sortent
a croire quand je me vois que je suis déjà morte

Si je perds la memoire il faudrait pas s'inquiéter
C'est que ma vie est au soir d'une triste journée
Si je perds la raison il faudrait pas s'en vouloir
Si ce n'est plus ma maison laissez-moi dans le couloir

Si je perds les pédales, et si ça vous inquiète
Si ça vous fait trop mal, ou je ne sais plus qui vous êtes
Et si je perds la boule n'ayez pas trop pitié
Ma tête est une foule de visages oubliés

Je me sens friperie, je me fais momie
Mes enfants me déplacent comme un vieux manuscrit
et j'ai les feuilles qui cassent, je suis mal écrite

Je me sens bizarre, je m'habille trop tard
Si je repense aux instants où j'ai fait, sans le savoir,
la course avec le temps sans me dire au revoir

Si je perds la memoire il faudrait pas s'inquiéter
C'est que ma vie est au soir d'une triste journée
Si je perds la raison il faudrait pas s'en vouloir
Si ce n'est plus ma maison laissez-moi dans le couloir

Si je perds les pédales, et si ça vous inquiète
Si ça vous fait trop mal, ou je ne sais plus qui vous êtes
Et si je perds la boule n'ayez pas trop pitié
Ma tête est une foule de visages oubliés

Si je perds la memoire il faudrait pas s'inquiéter
C'est que ma vie est au soir d'une triste journée
Si je perds la raison il faudrait pas s'en vouloir
Si ce n'est plus ma maison laissez-moi dans le couloir

Si je perds les pédales, et si ça vous inquiète
Si ça vous fait trop mal, ou je ne sais plus qui vous êtes
Et si je perds la tête n'ayes pas trop pitié
Bientôt je serai bête et vous aurez m'oubliée
I feel like a flea market, I am the wicked
If my children invite me I'm not just the
and when they visit me I'm transparent
I look pale, I sobbed
My children cleanse me, come to me unknown
to believe when I see that I'm already dead

If I lose the memory should not worry
Is that my life is a sad day evening
If I lose the reason we should not blame
If this is not my house let me in the hallway

If I lose the pedals, and if you're worried
If it makes you too bad, or I do not know who you are
And if I lose the ball do not be too sorry
My head is a lot of forgotten faces

I feel thrift, I'm mummy
My children move me like an old manuscript
and I leaves that break, I'm poorly written

I feel weird, I dress too late
If I think back to the times when I did, without knowing it,
race with time to say goodbye

If I lose the memory should not worry
Is that my life is a sad day evening
If I lose the reason we should not blame
If this is not my house let me in the hallway

If I lose the pedals, and if you're worried
If it makes you too bad, or I do not know who you are
And if I lose the ball do not be too sorry
My head is a lot of forgotten faces

If I lose the memory should not worry
Is that my life is a sad day evening
If I lose the reason we should not blame
If this is not my house let me in the hallway

If I lose the pedals, and if you're worried
If it makes you too bad, or I do not know who you are
And if I lose my head is too pity ayes
Soon I'll be stupid and you forgotten me

#TheWeeklyRoundUp: Ghost Lollies, Guac, Creepy Cute, & More!

A Beautiful Mess: Ghost Lollipop Bouquet
♥ This Ghost Lollipop Bouquet from A Beautiful Mess really took me back 20 years to when I was a kid in grade school.  Do you remember making Ghost lollipops?  Ah so cute!  Maybe I'll make some for my godkids this Halloween!

♥ This post about maintaining long-distance friendships from Be A Warrior Queen really popped up in my feed at a time when I couldn't have needed it more.  I've been really bummed this week missing Josh and Melanie.  For some reason this time of year makes it harder to be away from the two of them, and when I feel sad about missing Josh I wish Melanie were there to make me feel better, and when I feel sad about missing Melanie I wish Josh were there.  Luckily I have my Kristina who's still local. 

 

Oh Rocky announced her shop launch and I LOVE her art and buttons!  So dang creepy cute-all of it.

♥ I've always wanted to successfully do NaNoWriMo.  I've always said I'm going to, and always failed.  I am not even going to try again until I'm out of school, however if you're inclined to give it a go you should check out these NaNoWriMo success tips from The Girl Who Loved to Write About Love!

♥ Guacamole might be one of my favorite things in the world, so you can believe I'm going to try this Perfect Guacamole recipe from Your Charmed Life.  I'm drooling over this photo...


The Weekly Round-Up

The point of The Weekly Round-Up is to focus on other people instead of just another post about ourselves.  It's to build better community, share insight into what we love to read, and hopefully introduce you to a new blogger you'll love and adore!  Wanna play along?  Write a post with links to your favorite blog posts from others throughout the week, put the button in it, and link up with us on Sundays!
